Eeee’ By Heck! The Lancashire Hotpots Are Coming To T’grand!
Take five Northern blokes, dress them in flat caps, get them to sing folk songs about the wonders modern day life and you have the recipe for fun that is The Lancashire Hotpots!
Since forming in 2007 The Lancashire Hotpots have become local heroes! Described by Paddy McGuiness as “the Spinal Tap of folk bands” they have played Glastonbury Festival twice and performed live studio sessions at BBC 6Music for avid Hotpots fan Steve Lamacq. Perhaps even more importantly the band have had real ales named after them and have firmly reinstated the conga as an essential part of everybody’s good night out!
